Ok, I got the lenses (even though I had to wait for 'em!) Wednesday, and today was the first chance I've had to try them out. This was on the way home today. Shot it with the *istD and a Tamron 28-75 XR Di lens. Shutter speed 1/500 @ f/9.0 & 75mm. Tweaked a bit in PS to bring out the sun rays. It started pouring buckets just after this shot. I barely made it back into the car without getting soaked.
